Just as an update from the Irish perspective, It looks like Revenue here in Ireland will go for the self certify tax option on green( red) diesel. They ( our revenue) have indicated that they beleive HM Customs will adopt the same approach. Its expected that this solution will be published in a finance bill here in ireland in February

Thats a great solution all round , gives the Eu what it wants, gives us wnat it wants, god bless the nod and a wink approach.
